PERFORMANCE: George Eliot Hospital Trust’s self-assessed governance risk rating for quarter four is amber-red, after the trust missed targets on C difficile and accident and emergency care.

Board papers for February said there were seven cases of C difficile in January.

A new two-stage testing process has now been implemented in line with national guidance.

In A&E, 93.5 per cent of patients waited four hours or less, while in the first half of February performance has dropped below 93%.
